Dexter's Laboratory #4

Dexter's dimensional travels come to a close, but not before the boy genius has to endure quite a bit of torture at the hands of a sister who doesn't remember him and now rules over a world where magic trumps science. Forced to attend tea parties and be the plaything of DeeDee and her friends, Dexter finally reaches the breaking point and reveals his deepest, darkest secret which it turns out A) isn't that dark and B) was just what was needed to make DeeDee remember her little brother.

The four-part mini-series comes to a close with brother and sister setting the universe right and traveling home together. They even do a little dancing. I've enjoyed the mini-series from writer Derek Fridolfs and artist Ryan Jampole who crafted an original story that still fits the look and tone of the television show. Dexter's advnetures may be coming to an end here but he'll be part of IDW's big summer event (along with several other current and former Cartoon Network properties) - Super Secret Crisis War! Worth a look.
